of his first presidential term, president obama went on offense warning republicans not to play politics with the debt ceiling. here is some of what he had to say. >> raising the debt ceiling does not authorize more spending. it simply allows the country to pay for spending that congress has already committed to. if congressional republicans refuse to pay america's bills on time, social security checks and veterans' benefits will be delayed. we might not be able to pay our troops or honor our contracts with small business owners. markets could go haywire, interest rates would spike for anybody who borrows money, every homeowner with a mortgage. it would be a self-inflicted wound on the economy. so to even entertain the idea of this happening, of the united states of america not paying its bills, is irresponsible. it's absurd. >> well, the president has got to get past the debt ceiling in order to achieve his second term agenda, but how does he do it when some republicans are threatening shutdown? chuck todd and howard fineman. chuck, you know, i get the sense i was listening to the late

of people from other parts of the country and not let this stuff come up for a vote? >> what do you think the white house's assessment is of that what you just laid out? what do you expect from president obama tomorrow in terms of a balance between things he can do himself and things he would need congress to do? >> well, he is going to do as much as he can to enforce existing law and do things through executive orders. no, the gun owners don't have to fear he is not going to take guns away through executive orders. it's that fear, that paranoia being spread by the nra and others. but he is going to take executive action. but i think he is going to propose a very robust plan from everything i hear, including an assault weapons ban. that seems to be the measure that has the most difficulty. one of the things i think they're going to propose, by the way, is to make it a lot easier to collect data on gun violence, on people who die in violence. the nra has blocked even the collection of data. so we can't know what is going on. so we can't come up with the right solutions. i hope that is part
, a lot of folks from suburban places around the country, it's become a bit unruly on economics. and i think obama has papered over that for the last four years. but i think that's going to change here in the next few years. the first issue where i think we'll see a conversation on this is the question of entitlements. there are some folks in the democratic party who are happy to have a conversation on issues like the eligibility age for medicare. other democrats like sherrod brown, the senator from ohio, i talked to, they say hell, no, we are not going to have a conversation about that. that is core to our dna, and we're not going to move on that. >> j-mart, last time republicans had an internal debate about a lot of these issues, a lot of folks divided the party. you mention smd moderaed some m coming over to the democratic party. do you see a contentious primaries in the future for the 2014 midterms? >> well, look. i don't think you're going to see the sort of club-for-growth-style conservative on moderate attacks that you see in the gop. i think you're going to see some of that. ke
in the country. we had the flight of manufacturing jobs until recently. there's a bit of a turn around there. it seems to me president obama's biggest priority should not be the deficit. it should be restoring shared economic growth. yes, we need to do something about the long term deficit. i think the big argument is going to be between people who want to argue that the whole deal is deficit reduction. let's spend all our time putting on our green eye shades and talking these numbers. ezra will be excellent in describing what the numbers need. in fact, we could get a deficit on a decent course for a few years with about 1.5 trillion deficit reduction then move on to other issues. you are going to talk about it later, obviously guns and immigration. can we restore shared growth? >> yeah. >> people at the bottom go up as well as people at the top. that was the core promise for the obama campaign. >> this is not a small thing. there is no guarantee. if we bring down the deficit, there's no guarantee the next president will be a democrat or to the left of center. we may want a deficit reduction
